Oundle School pupils are celebrating today having achieved an outstanding set of GCSE and IGCSE results. This year, pupils received a mixed economy of grades on the 9-to-1 and old letter scales: 57% of all grades awarded were 9, 8 or A*, the second highest proportion of top grades for over ten years.
Fifteen pupils achieved a clean sweep of the highest grades available to them, whilst over 40% of the year group recorded the equivalent to all A* and A. Amongst the reformed qualifications, a very impressive 33% of all results were grade 9, the highest grade, and 62% of results achieved grades 8 or 9.
Performance was strong across all subjects with Classical Greek, English, Latin and Russian leading the way with over 70% A* grades or equivalent. More than three quarters of all candidates received grades 9 or 8 in English Language and English Literature IGCSEs.
The school is extremely pleased that its pupils have performed so well in all public examinations. Sarah Kerr-Dineen, Head of Oundle School, said, “These are exceptional results from a hard-working year group, who can look ahead with confidence to a fulfilling Sixth Form career.”
